Taapsee Pannu takes a jibe at Kangana Ranaut using Rangolis sasti copy

first_imgKangana Rananut, Taapsee Pannu, Rangoli ChandelInstagramTaapsee Pannu may not want to indulge in any kind of argument with Kangana Ranaut or her sister Rangoli Chandel who had called her a ‘sasti copy’ of Kangana. But the Manmarziyaan actor couldn’t stop herself from taking a sly dig at the Ranaut sisters when a news publication termed Taapsee as the real queen of Bollywood.As soon as Taapsee came across the article which featured a juxtaposed image of her and Kangana, she replied to the tweet saying, “Arre arre! Aise mat boliye. Queen unhi ko rehne dijiye nahi toh phir copy kehlaugi, main ek actor his sahi hu bas aise hi mera sath dete rahiye. dhanyawad (Please don’t say like that. Let her [Kangana Ranaut] be the queen or else I’ll be called a copy again. I am happy being an actor. Just keep supporting like this. Thank you).”It all started when Taapsee took to Twitter to laud the trailer of Judgemental Hai Kya and didn’t mention anyone’s name (especially Kangana Ranaut’s name) in her appreciation tweet.”This is so cool!!!! Always had high expectations out of this one n this looks so worth it ! #JudgementallHaiKya,” Taapsee had tweeted.However, Rangoli had shot back at Taapsee for not praising Kangana in her tweet and went on to call her a ‘sasti copy of Kangana’.”Kuch log Kangana ko copy kar ke he apni dukaan chalate hain, magar pls note, they never acknowledge her not even a mention of her name in praising the trailer, last I heard Taapsee ji said Kangana needs a double filter and Tapsee ji you need to stop being a sasti copy (sic),” Rangoli had tweeted.While Taapsee chose to remain calm and quiet, director Anurag Kashyap had jumped to her defense. He told Rangoli that her tweet was in a very bad taste and looked really desperate for people’s appreciation.Later, when Taapsee was asked to comment on Rangoli’s insulting words, she said that she has decided not to react on Rangoli’s demeaning statements against her adding that she genuinely had no time to spare for it.last_img read more

Over 40 Labour donors and longstanding members ha

first_imgOver 40 Labour donors and long-standing members have written to Jeremy Corbyn demanding that he “back a public vote without further delay”.The letter, sent to the Labour leader today, warns that “time is dangerously short” and “the current deadlock is slowly but surely wrecking the economy”.Citing Theresa May’s “dismal record as a negotiator” and “propensity to put party before country”, the party donors say they could not trust her to deliver the right Brexit result – even if parliament were to vote for Labour’s alternative Brexit plan.Many of the signatories are members of Labour’s Rose Network, and the list includes some who have donated hundreds of thousands of pounds to the Labour Party.Below is the letter to Jeremy Corbyn in full. Dear Jeremy,We write to you as long-standing Labour members and supporters, from business, public service and the professions.You were right to say in Wakefield earlier this month that “it’s the failed system, rigged against the many to protect the interests of the few, that is the real cause of inequality and insecurity”. This is responsible for high bills, rising debts, insecure work and people forced to use food banks.And that’s why we need a Labour government: to invest in vital industries; to help places that have been robbed of their future by the toxic combination of misguided economic policies, lack of investment and drastically declining public services.But despite defeating Theresa May’s destructive Brexit deal, we have so far failed to force a general election. And now the country is staring into the abyss as Tory extremists push for us to crash out of the EU with no deal at all.If this happens, working people will be hurt the most. There will be no money to invest in new technologies of the future – and no money for proud, generous communities that have been held back for decades.Labour policy is to consider all remaining options, including a public vote. But time is dangerously short, and the current deadlock is slowly but surely wrecking the economy. Even if parliament, against most expectations, were to vote for Labour’s Brexit plan, given the Prime Minister’s dismal record as a negotiator and propensity to put party before country, we could never trust her to deliver the result that Labour proposes and the country needs.We therefore believe that the party must move to the only logical conclusion: trust the people and ask them whether they still want to quit the EU now they know what Brexit really means.Time is running out. The economy is already bleeding. As longstanding and committed party members, we urge you to back a public vote without further delay.In solidarity,1.     Hamish Sandison, Chair Labour Business2.     Tommy Hutchinson, Founder CEO I-Genius3.     Cllr Jo Blackman4.     Kate O’Rourke, Lawyer5.     Stephen Kinsella OBE6.     Dame Glenis Willmott, Former Leader EPLP7.     Sir Ken Collins, Former MEP8      David Cockroft, Former General Secretary International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF)9.     Howard Pallis, Solicitor10.    Jon Browning OBE11.    Rt Hon Keith Hill12.    Prof. Rosemary Sales13.    Keith Lichman, Former Councillor14.    Gary Titley, Former Leader EPLP15.    Carole Tongue, Former MEP16.    David Harley CMG17.    Patrick Costello, Labour International18.    Monica Threlfall, Senior Lecturer19.    Nilly Sarkar, Labour International20.    Anne Page21.    Bruce Page, Journalist22.    Don Brind, Journalist23.    Anita Pollack, Former MEP24.    Robert McFarland, Chartered Accountant25.    Michael Rubenstein, Journalist26.    David Earnshaw, Chair Brussels Labour27.    Michael Hindley, Former MEP28.    Chris Pond,  Chair Lending Standards Board, Former MP,29.    Lorraine Pond, Former Mayor Tower Hamlets30.    Jo Wood, Labour International31.    Win Griffiths OBE, Former MEP and MP32.    Maggie Coulthard, Labour international33.    Frazer Clarke, Labour International34.    Peter Wragg, Labour International35.    Anne Corbett36     Paula Kahn37     Frances Pinter38.    Annie Hedge39.    Howard Gennmerster40.    Mike Vessey41.   Keir Fitch42.    Peter KenyonThis article was amended to reflect that not all of the signatories are current donors. Tags:Labour /Jeremy Corbyn /Brexit /Labour donors /People’s Vote /last_img read more
